Are you Vata type?

“Prakriti”  means our unique constitution or mind and body type. Ayurveda believes that all the creations of Mother Nature are composed of five great elements “Panch Mahabhutas” and all the creatures have these five elements in them but the proportion is not the same.

These five elements are Eather, Air, Fire, Water, and Earth. Vata is composed of two great elements Air and Ether. Vata is subtle, dry, cold, and light. Vata is responsible for circulation and movement in the body.

  • Change your mind frequently.
  • Don’t do well with the schedule.
  • Multitasking.
  • Try to make everything artistic.
  • Get excited about new tasks and projects.
